Start off with a base coat, I used Seche Clear’s “Crystal Clear Base Coat.”
Apply a white base to all of the nails, I used Sally Hansen’s Complete Salon Manicure in “White Out.”
I applied Latex Tape for minimal clean up to all of the nails except for the accent nail, I used Pueen’s “Latex Tape.”
Then, apply some blobs of polish or paint on the nails, I used Apple Barrel’s “Christmas Green” and “Bright Red” acrylic paint.
Bunch up saran/cling wrap and then press it onto the nail for a marbled effect. I used Sally Beauty’s “Claw” to make it easier.
Then peal off the latex tape. For the accent nails I simply painted a vertical dash towards the cuticle of the nail and then lightly swiped a brush back and forth with different horizontal lines to create the tree. I used the same green color and Winstonia’s “Fine Line” brush.
At the tip of the tree I applied a glitter flake from Sephora by OPI’s “Only Gold For Me Top Coat.”
I then applied this glitter top coat to all of the marbled nails and over the tree.
Lastly, apply a top coat, I used Seche Vite’s “Dry Fast Top Coat.”
Your Christmas Tree Accent Nails are finished!
